Darwinism is a theory that is supported for the sake of materialist philosophy. This is the main reason behind the zealotry of Darwinists in countering the criticisms against their theory. For a long time, especially in the Western world, critics against the theory of evolution has been assaulted by several means: media propagated against them, they lost their jobs in schools, courts ruled against teaching theories other than evolution.
But the scientific evidence is not on the evolutionists" side, so they are loosing ground inevitably. In the last few decades, criticism against the Darwinist dogma was raised from every corner in the scientific community. This created a public awareness about the fallacies of the theory of evolution and the evidence for creation. In the last few years, this awareness is having its impacts in the US educational system. The dogmatic ban on teaching "creationism" - the view that life on Earth is the artifact of a Creator - is now questioned and abolished in several states.
The latest crack in the wall of Darwinist dogmatism came from Georgia, one of the southern east states of America. The ABC News website reports the following:
The board of Georgia"s second-largest school district voted Thursday night to give teachers permission to introduce students to varying views about the origin of life, including creationism. The proposal, approved unanimously by the Cobb County school board, says the district believes "discussion of disputed views of academic subjects is a necessary element of providing a balanced education, including the study of the origin of species."...
Supporters, including high school junior Michael Gray, said the board"s choice encouraged academic freedom. "I had to do a term paper about evolution and there were just things that I could disprove or have alternate reasons for," said Gray, who attends Pope High School. "I want my brother and sister to be given the option and not told it"s the absolute truth." 1
The Darwinist establishment is alarmed against this decision. The strange fact is that they are trying to use legal means to stop creationism, not any intellectual effort. As ABC News reports, Barry Lynn, executive director for Americans United for Separation of Church and State says that they will sue the Cobb County school board. "It would be as if Cobb County were putting up a giant `sue me" sign," he adds. What he misses is the fact he is using the same method used by the infamous Inquisition centuries ago: Trying to defeat a scientific idea by "legal" means.
The Inquisition had failed to protect its dogmas-like the Ptolemaic model of the universe. The Darwinist establishment will fail too, to protect the myth called evolution.
